Zebra Ridge
Livingstone Range, Alberta
March 29, 2015

When I hiked up Zebra Ridge, I did so to study a route up Lightning Peak. Back then, the ridge didn't have a name (for that matter, I hadn't yet named Lightning Peak). Only years later, while looking at, did I learn the ridge was later called Zebra.

I used the same approach that I later used for Lightning Peak: an exploration road. I walked up the road until I reached the south end of the ridge and then hiked up the ridge. Then I headed north, traversing most of the ridge, before descending an open slope on the left. At the bottom of the slope, I bushwhacked to Highway 22. I followed the road to my car.

This scouting mission was a success. From Zebra Ridge, I was able to study most of the route to the summit of Lightning and took dozens of photos. I returned four months later and climbed the peak.

Unfortunately, logging has since destroyed the area, and I heard the road is gone.
